Best drama movie mistakes of 2017
Deliberate mistake: At the end when PT hands over his top hat to Philip, Philip has a coat with tails. They disappear during his number. In fact they disappear mid-shot - he runs onstage and they're there when he starts sliding, but disappear in the split second he's behind a woman in a purple dress. (01:34:25)
Factual error: The underground station shown is not St. James Park, which would be 1 stop east on the District line. St. James Park has green and yellow tiles on the wall indicating District and Circle lines. The platform in the film has black and brown tiles, indicating Northern and Bakerloo lines, neither of which serve St. James Park.Crusoe
Continuity mistake: When Pierce first begins to interrogate Caliban in the safe house in Mexico, a large portion of Caliban's albino makeup is smudged below his nose, revealing the actor's natural skin in his first close-up of the scene; after switching to a close-up of Pierce, then back to Caliban, the smudge has been fixed.
Continuity mistake: During the beginning of the family therapy session, Dr. Beckham confirms that Ellen's father is not attending and removes the empty chair from the circle, placing it by the wall. Seconds later, the chair is back (and remains for the rest of the therapy session). (00:35:05)Ashlyhne
Continuity mistake: Kate's makeup has her looking well healed while she is still sleeping in the cave, only to return to a swollen eye as she is rescued from the frozen lake. (00:45:05 - 00:56:45)
Factual error: M60A3 tanks and AH-1 were no longer in service at the time of the invasion in 2003, replaced by the M1 Abrams. The AH-64 humvees have crew protection that did not exist prior to 2005.
Factual error: The movie's set in the late 90s, but a 2015 Lexus and Audi are visible behind a girl when they first arrive in LA. (01:23:00)
Factual error: When Molly is injured during skiing fall at Deer Valley Resort, 2 patrollers rush to her aide, 1 on a snowboard. Deer Valley does not allow snowboarders.
Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, during Lewis Carol's visit to America, you can hear them playing the melody from the song "The Yankee Doodle Boy" written by James Cohan in 1904. This was 64 years after the events in the movie. In the ending credits they cite this as "Yankee Doodle Dandy" which was written many years before. But, that was not the melody that was being played.
Continuity mistake: When Megan is outside the supermarket asking people to sign her petition, a woman walks up and begins writing on the clipboard. In the first shot, the cap is on the back side of the pen. From the next angle, the woman is scribbling and lifts the pen to show the cap covering the tip that she was "writing" with.
